A Year in Review

We’re at the peak of the holiday season here in Downtown Kamloops! From people taking part in the season’s festivities and events to last-minute gift shopping, to folks enjoying a stroll along the Rivers Trail with family and friends, Downtown Kamloops is full of excitement this time of year! Of course, the more temperate weather we’re experiencing doesn’t hurt. Here’s a year in review.

As we reflect on the holiday season, we also reflect on the last 12 months in the heart of our city. The CAP Team had a successful year acting as ambassadors for both safety-social and Kamloops tourism.

Summary of the Year

The CAP Team has cleaned up 1457 needles off the streets. And another 1874 safety hazards were collected and disposed of properly! The team contacted law enforcement 128 times throughout the year regarding incidents that needed their intervention.

The CAP Team has participated in the organization and execution of numerous successful events in Downtown Kamloops. Most recently, the 38th Annual Santa Claus Parade and latest installment in the Block Party Series- the Fulton & Company LLP Welcome Winter Block Party. In addition to events, the CAP Team assisted many tourists, citizens, and contacted members of Downtown Kamloops 2216 times. Whether questions are related to attractions downtown, local events, or something safety-related, the CAP Team is proud to be able to help!

Concluding the Year

Overall, 2018 was another great year for the CAP Team, and we would like to extend a thank you to the visitors, locals, employees, and business owners alike that we had the pleasure of interacting with over the year from the bottom of our hearts. The CAP Team will be on holiday from December 23rd to January 3rd but will be back in the New Year refreshed and ready to get right back on track to make 2019 an even greater success! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our family to yours!
